Additional information

Use of Allantoin does not include direct application to the soil and an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For a substance being considered as readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Furthermore, the log KOw is below 3 and the substance indicates a low adsorption potential. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Tests on terrestrial organisms are considered as unnecessary. So terrestrial toxicity endpoints were waived according to REACH Annex IX Section 9.4 Column 2 because direct and indirect exposure to soil compartment is unlikely.
